The conniving politician at the center of the Netflix drama "House of Cards" is named Frank, but he's anything but honest, forthright and direct. His wife was christened Claire - an ironic choice for a woman who always has an ulterior motive. Even the couple's surname, "Underwood," hints at their hypocrisy by echoing "underhanded. " It's costume designer Johanna Argan's job to subliminally convey that duplicity to the audience through the clothes the characters wear. "The other characters think they're getting one thing from Frank and Claire," Argan said in a phone interview.

In reality, this project will kill large numbers of birds, such as bald eagles and ospreys, which are attracted to the lights necessary for aircraft safety at night. Why do our politicians fall for these projects that are supposed to improve the economy?

But how often do we think about what it really means? Women traditionally have taken any mention of clothes and hair at the office as demeaning, a way to diminish our importance, to take the focus off the substance of our work.

Bank Clothier's resolve to remain independent emerged Thursday as the menswear retailer rejected Men's Wearhouse's increased hostile takeover offer but said it would meet with its rival to discuss a merger.

That offer depends upon Bank ending an agreement reached two weeks ago to buy outdoor apparel retailer Eddie Bauer for $825 million in cash and stock.
